Dive In, Splash About, Enjoy. Be Creative

BlackbirdAfterBath

One of my favourite backyard visitors, a blackbird, plunges into the bird bath. The blackbird looks pleased, perched on the bath’s rim, feathers dripping. And so am I, with my new bird bath–a recycled gardening pot.

Sometimes joy can be as simple as watching the antics of a feathery friend diving in, splashing about, enjoying. And being creative is so much fun, especially making something new out of something old–something even tweeting visitors can delight in.

One thought on “Dive In, Splash About, Enjoy. Be Creative

  1. I know the feeling, Michele. I often watch the birds in my backyard enjoying not only the bird bath, but my unused doggie bowls filled with water. I place them around the yard when the weather is hot. It is a real delight to see them shaking the water off themselves, and looking very refreshed and happy.

    cheers
